Subject: A Beautiful Film About a Delicate Issue
A word about many of the Pro-Life radicals out there. For those of you that insist abortion is murdering a fetus, why do the radicals bomb and set fire to clinics, shooting doctors and nurses? One is one murder not ok, but murdering adults is. I have never met a Pro-Lifer that didn't support going to war, murdering adults! Why is killing people in wars not just as abhorrent?
Subject: Thank You
Subject: Fadiman murdered her own baby!
Subject: Great Film!
Subject: Well made.
You're proposing that the main purpose for sex is only for procreation? You have to be financially secure before enjoying an orgasm?
Your first statement is so ridiculous that I can't even fathom the realism in whatever else you say -- or believe in.
Whether you believe abortion is right or wrong, the video documentary is full of information and truth.
Subject: Motherhood by choice.
Motherhood by choice...all that means is that you choose to have sex. If you are not ready for the possible outcomes of your actions, then you should not commit the actions.
Scientific evidence has show that a fetus feels pain. If you were annoying and invisible, would you like me to end your life so I wouldnt have to bother with you any more?
Many times, abortion physicians are doctors who had their licenses revoked in other states.
Safe? The reason abortion has such a high safety rate is because most abortion clinics are not required to keep records of the women who go there. Therefore, if a woman gets ill or dies after an abortion, there is no record as to that she had an abortion, or that she had an abortion that a particular clinic.
My last point. On average, it costs less to give a baby up for adoption than it dose to kill it.
If you are going to support something, look into it first. Find out all the facts about what you are supporting.
If a pregnant woman is murdered, it counts as double murder, yet she can kill the baby whenever she feels like it. It is poverty to end ones life so that we may live as we wish.
